A really satisfying salad that includes some great antioxidant ingredients and the fact that it’s GF is purely by accident.

I found this on loveandlemons.com and I am so glad I did, the only substitute I made was Pistachios for the Almonds.

  1. Make the Dressing by mincing the Garlic, zesting and juicing the Lemon then whisking them into all the other ingredients.
  2. Cook the Quinoa according to the package but substituting the Water for Vegetable Stock and all the stock is absorbed, set aside to cool and then fluff with a fork to separate the grains or whatever Quinoa is.
  3. Drain the can of Chickpeas.
  4. Chop the Dried Apricots.
  5. Dice the Avocado.
  6. Finely chop the Chives.
  7. Mix the Dressing through the Quinoa, add the Avocados, Apricots, Chickpeas and the Chives.
  8. Mix through the Arugula and throw the Pistachios on top.
